AliA x Kreshik @ Club 20/44
Aqui No Baile x White City Soul presents:AliA x Kreshik
Sometimes you are visiting an event and you realize that the DJ’s extremely varied selection and mixing technique is actually very, very good. So far nothing really extraordinary – but what if we told you that this DJ was only 17 years old? You can already imagine the surprise on our face at this first encounter with AliA. In the meantime, this lady has just surpassed the legal driving age of 18, but her dedication to soulful and electronic music in all its shapes is already astonishingly thorough. – Red Bull Elektropedia
Co-Founder of Bloom Hill Agency, resident hooligan at Kiosk Radio and The Word Magazine, Bonnefooi’s curator, Kreshik is also an hypnotising DJ whose main area of expertise leads you to a dreamy percussive journey. As a turntablist, he quickly rose to prominence for his infamous “Huveshta Rituals”.
